|What is the District 64 All-Star Tournament?
Davis Little League is a member of California District 64. There are 12
local leagues that comprise District 64, including Davis American, Davis National, Dixon,
Esparto, Travis, Rio Vista, Vacaville American, Vacaville Central, Vacaville National,
Woodland American, Woodland National and Winters.
All-Star teams start by playing a D64 intra-district tournament. Davis American and National Little Leagues each support a 9/10 All-Star team (comprised of 9 & 10 year-olds), a 10/11 All-Star team (comprised of 10 & 11 year olds), an 11/12 All-Star team (comprised of 11 & 12-year-olds), and a Juniors All-Star team (comprised of Juniors players). District 64 hosts an annual "All-Star" tournament at the end of the regular Little League season.
All levels can progress to Sectional and then Divisional Championships. 11/12 year olds have the opportunity, should they continue to win, to advance to the Regional Championships and, ultimately, to the Little League World Series in Williamsport.
Every Davis Little League player age 9 or older that is in "good standing"
is eligible to participate in tournament play provided they are selected to the team.
It is expected that every player selected to a District 64 Tournament Team
will commit to any postseason play necessary, including practices and games,
throughout the District 64 tournament period. Postseason play will begin immediately
following the regular spring season.
